This was supposed to be posted last week but I missed my appointment for last Monday because I was so tired post-public law essay and so was my mom so we ended up not going. I really wanted to delay the appointment some more but I was running out of a certain gel for my face so I decided to just make my way down after school. Dr. Lau, whom I had my first consult with, told me straight up the first time that the order in which all the different creams and gels are applied are very important so I didn’t want to mix up my steps just because I ran out of one gel. The first time I went there, we went by car and we took a good five minutes to find the place but this time, I made my way down by train and I realized that it was surprisingly easy to get to! (Made it down in the ni(c )k of time as well – their break starts at 5 and I made it 4.45pm, phew).
So, for the people who are interested in Niks and whether it is working… To be honest, I’m not sure whether my skin has gotten better since the first consultation at Niks. Initially, it definitely looked a lot better – my cheeks were clear! (For awhile). Maybe right now it is the purging stage? But just today, a friend told me that my skin looked a lot better, so yay I hope that is true.
Right now I’m mostly still using the same creams and gels. Save for the fact that he added 2 new gels + increased the dosage of my Stieva-A. Dr. Lau said that usually from the first visit, nothing much will change. But from the subsequent visits, there will be exponential improvement. I really, really hope that it is true :>
My skin has always looked more flushed than everyone else’s 😦 Or maybe Lohloh is just v fair
BUT I learnt a new thing today. Apparently (I can’t remember which gel because I have so many) but one of the gels increases the risk of sun burn which is why my face always seems so flushed nowadays!!!! W O W so magical. Which is why he gave me a bottle of sunblock… and I need to use it now.
With regards to my eczema, it definitely has gotten a lot better! It cleared up, until I stopped using the medication because I thought it was gone for good. But the doctor said that “with eczema, you need to be disciplined” and I guess with the recent stress re public law/ equity, it is no wonder that it flared up. Oh wells.
Fingers crossed that by the time I go back the next three weeks, there will really be exponential improvement, for everything! :>
All these are just for my face. IT’D BETTER BE FLAWLESS SOON
